As is my custom, I ate breakfast while I waited for the bus in front of the Boardwalk Inn and Villas.
When the bus finally pulled in and I climbed on, I did think it was kind of odd that no one else was on the bus. And that the bus driver asked if I was headed to Chef Mickey’s or Crystal Palace … hm … neither? But I never have been very good at taking a hint.
I pulled up to the Magic Kingdom bus port at 7:45 for what I thought would be an 8 a.m. rope drop show … only to find out that the Park wouldn’t be open until 9 a.m. Um … oopsie? Touring plan fail!
I made the most of it, chatting with some fellow Disney fans and admiring other people’s children. (I do that. I’m a creeper. But your kids are so darn cute, and I don’t have any of my own.)
Finally, the opening show started, and it was just as magical as it always is. It makes me so happy … but it also makes me a little sad that none of the other Parks have such an awesome welcoming show.
A CM came by and gave me a handful of “pixie dust” to throw into the air when they hit “ONE” in the countdown to rope drop. Mickey glitter is not very aerodynamic, most of mine ended up in a pile at my feet. Or maybe my palms were sweaty. ::shrug::
I love morning at Disney World.
